Stock tires on wider wheel?

I have a 2002 jeep GC Laredo (non 4x4) with the I6 engine.

I just bought 16x8.5 wheels and was wondering if the stock tires I already have will fit those wheels since they are .5" wider.

My stock tires are 225/75/16 on what I'm guessing is a 16x8 wheel.

Thanks
-cody

I think your stock wheels are 16 x 7.

So 16 x 8 would be 1.5" wider.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Ok I just found where it said my wheels are 16x7 so yeah I guess that wouldn't work. I was thinking it would if it was 16x8 but since it's not, now I won't. Thanks for the help guys!!
